I can see getting away with a fake punt once, but twice?
Sure, the Rams/Niners game ended in a tie. I understand why everyone’s a little baffled over that one. But that’s not what makes me rub my eyes in disbelief.
Ok, I get getting away with one fake punt. I really do. It’s a gutsy call anywhere, but credit to the Rams (thank you Jeff Fisher’s mustache?) for pulling this one off out of their own end zone.
All right, so enough of that chicanery, right? Once is enoug…oh, all right, why not try it again?
Again, not knocking the Rams. If you’re the Niners, who have a good defense, HOW THE HELL DO YOU MISS THAT TWICE? If the 49ers don’t win the Super Bowl this year, they can blame those two plays. It won’t be the reason, but hey, it’ll be something other than “Alex Smith.”
